A Few Reviews

My book has received a couple of reviews over the last few months. Back in November, Books & Culture carried a long review by Robert Elder. He also wrote a review in Journal of American Studies.
HomeMore recently, Joseph Reiff wrote a review article which appeared in the March 1 issue of Christian Century. Both men are white southerners, a group notorious for its suspicion of outsiders inflicting their opinions; however, Reiff wrote:
"As a Mississippi exile who grew up in the 1960s in Jackson and served a United Methodist pastor their in the mid-1980s, I can say that though this is, as Slade admits, 'a white Englishman's study of a Christian racial reconciliation movement in Mississippi,' he gets the story remarkably right, with all the nuances."
